Want to be an Astronaut? NASA is Accepting Applications
Every little boy and girl's dream at one time or another has been to blast off into space as a real life astronaut. Well, starting in March, that could be a real possibility when NASA starts accepting applications for the Artemis program, which could include flying to the moon, and the International Space Station.
According to Florida Today, and USA Today, from March 2-31, applications will be accepted at usajobs.gov, and the requirements are below. Everyone is welcome to apply, but only 350 people have been accepted for the program since the 1960's. See more info on the official NASA astronauts page. Good luck!
